Board of Deputies President Jonathan Arkush has paid tribute to Prince Philip, following his decision to stand down to step down from royal duties.

Jonathan said: “Prince Philip has been given long and tireless public service to our country for over 60 years. We salute him and wish him a very happy retirement.

“I had the honour of conducting him on a tour of Hertsmere Jewish Primary School at its opening in 2000 when I was the Chair of Governors.  He was a wonderful guest, engaging beautifully with the children and giving an outstanding witty speech.  It was a memorable occasion which those present will always recall with pleasure.”
